Spin-Polarized Scanning
Spin-Polarized Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Image of a 2D-Antiferromagnetic Monolayer Film. Direct observation of the two-dimensional atomic scale antiferromagnetic structure of a monolayer magnetic film by spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy (SP-STM). All atoms of the monolayer film (red and green) are of the same chemical species (Mn) and differ only by the orientation of their magnetic moment. Using a magnetic probe tip it is possible to measure an SP-STM image (see the height profile).
